Automatically Save Gmail Attachments to Google Drive with This Script

Everyone has a gmail account and everyone has access to Google drive. Many people wonder if it would be possible to save our gmail attachments into google drive . That way we can have them for posterity and reference on a future date. Life Hacker published a method to do this. Here it is



It’s easy enough to selectively save Gmail image attachments to Google Drive, but if you want to automate the process, tech blog Digital Inspiration shares a script that makes the archiving happen automatically.

The script runs in the background of Gmail, and when you get a new attachment it automatically sends it over to a folder called “Gmail Images” in your Google Drive. It also scans your email to pull out images from older emails so you don’t have to go through those thousands of older messages. If you want manual control, this script does the same thing but gives you full control over what gets sent over. You can grab the auto-save script, as well as installation instructions over on Digital Inspiration.
